Anesthesiology - Doctors Hospital

Prepare to achieve your highest potential as an anesthesiologist.

As an anesthesiology resident at OhioHealth Doctors Hospital, you’ll practice at the nation’s second largest osteopathic training facility – with clinical rotations in busy urban and academic medical centers. A four-year, ACGME-accredited program, we accept two residents per year.

A Flexible Curriculum That Strengthens Your Skills

We prepare you to lead at every step.

Our program provides you with everything you need to become a skilled anesthesiologist and an accomplished leader in your field. Along the way, you’ll have the full support of our dedicated faculty.

DIDACTICS

Scheduled lectures, meetings and events help you prepare for written and oral boards while also preparing you to excel in your chosen career paths. You’ll learn about specific processes and quality metrics that can enhance the quality and efficiency of care for your patients. Our faculty encourage academic discussion and learning about issues that may occur in the pre-, intra- or post-anesthetic period.

Examples include:

  • Lectures from notable textbooks, such as Clinical Anesthesiology and Miller’s Anesthesia.
  • Doctors Hospital Research Education Office resources to assist and guide residents throughout the research process.
  • Journal Club.
  • Board preparation and review for written and oral board exams.
    Monthly morbidity and mortality (M&M) conferences.
  • Monthly department-wide quality control meetings.
  • Simulation lab skills training — including assessment of critical decision-making skills that help you manage high-risk situations.
  • Simulation training to prepare you for the Objective Structured Clinical Exam (OSCE) portion of the American Board of Anesthesiology Applied Exam.
RESEARCH SUPPORT

Performing research helps you to gain added knowledge and experiences that contribute to your professional success. We’ll encourage you to complete a scientific case report, research or quality-improvement study in your areas of interest.

Several of our outstanding residents have completed research projects and have begun the Institutional Review Board (IRB) authorization process. Resources are available through Doctors Hospital Research Education Office to support residents at every stage of this process.

SIMULATION CENTER

Our simulation curriculum includes opportunities for you to learn and practice with high-fidelity simulators in OhioHealth’s sophisticated Center for Medical Education and Innovation (CME&I). This state-of-the-art medical education facility helps you to learn using some of the world's most advanced healthcare technologies.

Benefits of the center’s high-tech simulated environment include:

  • Increased patient safety.
  • Early evaluation of new medical technologies.
  • Streamlined application of new skills.

CLINIC DAY

During your residency, you’ll participate in a clinic day for half a day each week during most rotations. You will perform pre-assessment testing exams on patients who are having surgery at Doctors Hospital. You’ll also learn the best approaches for preparing patients to ensure a successful surgery. Your process will include taking detailed medical histories and performing physical examinations.

Clinic day strengthens your ability to identify disease states that increase intra- and post-operative morbidity and mortality. You will learn to reduce those risks by taking certain proactive steps. These include appropriate laboratory and diagnostic tests, and physician consultations.
